A set that is 1,500 today should be more capable than my old 3,300 set!

Maybe you are not taking that into account. Also just like tire warranties that are prorated they could have discounted this a little.

Step back and look at it dispassionately. It may look like a fair deal.

And just so you know, there is a sure fire way to have Samsung to stop talking to you. Many don't know and fall into "the pit." They threaten legal action. A check is put on your file that you are pursuing legal remedies and since it's now a legal matter the service folk are now absolved of further interaction with that customer. Be sure not to do that!
